Barcelona assure Lenglet he will not be sold

Barcelona have assured Clement Lenglet he will not be sold this summer.

Goal says Lenglet is not on the transfer market. Barcelona have told the French centre-back they will not listen to offers for him and have no intention of including him in any deal.

His salary (in comparison to other players) is low and his age (24) means he's coveted by a lot of clubs -- especially after his performances at Camp Nou and his rapid adaption.

But Barça, aware of his value and performances, are not thinking of letting him go. The situation with centre-backs at the club does not permit it. Gerard Pique is 33 and Samuel Umtiti has struggled with injuries.
